KIA again tests the updated Rio 2021 hatchback

The noticed prototype of the South Korean news received an unusually many different camouflage patterns. The presentation of the popular model can take place either at the end of this year, or at the beginning of the next.

A couple of minutes ago, at the disposal of our publication were “spy” images, which depict the South Korean hatchback Kia Rio. The fourth generation of the South Korean compact car was introduced back in October 2016 at the Paris Motor Show, so it’s logical to assume that Kia engineers are now testing the updated version of the model, and not its completely new generation. The official presentation of the facelift car can take place either at the end of this year or at the beginning of 2021.

 Do not let the cumbersome disguise make you believe that the South Korean brand team is still testing the next generation of the model, which is said to get a completely different design.

 We expect small cosmetic changes throughout the body – a slightly redesigned bumper and a new look for headlights and taillights.

 Judging by these 17-inch alloy wheels and dual tailpipes, we have the GT Line version. Well, the LED daytime running lights with four points, which were called “ice cube”, is not visible on this prototype. It is difficult to determine exactly what changes Kia will make in its small car, but it is unlikely that the new product will surprise us with anything.

 It would be nice if the B-segment hatchback got a high-performance version of the Rio GT to compete with the American Ford Fiesta ST and the German Volkswagen Polo GTI. But I’m ready to argue that such a performance of a popular car will not be presented in the near future. Company management may simply not find sufficient financial justification for the creation of the Rio GT.
